1 RESEARCH AND INNOVATION STRATEGY

2 WELCOME

3 Delivering new opportunities through globally significant research and innovation excellence The Research and Innovation Strategy is the result of significant consultation with faculty staff, research leads and professional services departments. Our research and innovation culture is dynamic, externally focused and responsive. It is aimed at harnessing the expansive resources we have, from our student body to our excellent academic staff. We are developing capacity that has great potential to deal with global challenges and ensures our research and innovation has wide-ranging impact. Building on our existing strengths, this strategy sets out our aspirations and provides a framework to deliver our mission, in which we delight in creating, sharing and applying knowledge to make a difference to individuals and society. Our recent performance in the Research Excellence Framework has demonstrated the strength and breadth of our existing research. This strategy provides a framework that allows us to build upon those core strengths and to expand our research and innovation footprint. In addition, it maps out how we will deliver interdisciplinary research across five key thematic areas. We wish to pursue bold ideas, be creative and work to the highest standards, and in doing so, undertake research that acts as a driver for economic growth. We will endeavour to elevate our position within the top 500 universities in the world. The University has set ambitious targets for the coming years. Research and innovation activity will play a major role in helping the institution meet those targets. Our five thematic areas are designed to galvanise existing and new research avenues across the University and to add value through establishing new collaborative partners, both within and outside the institution. Together, we will look for new funding opportunities, create and test new ideas, explore alternative applications of our existing ideas and deliver economic growth through innovation. This strategy represents a strong statement from the organisation, committing its resources, people and passion to the pursuit of internationally significant research and innovation. We can achieve a great deal if we work together and I hope that, like me, you see a bright and prosperous future exploring these new ideas to help deliver a better world to live in, both now and in the years to come. Please read and share; this is your strategy. Pal Ahluwalia Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research and Innovation) UNIVERSITY OF PORTSMOUTH RESEARCH AND INNOVATION STRATEGY

6 OUR KEY AMBITIONS BRAIN TUMOUR RESEARCH CENTRE

7 Our excellent results in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014 have cemented our status as an institution that delivers strong benefits to society across the spectrum of activities that make up research and innovation. We now have a solid basis of recognised achievement on which to build as we move towards even greater future success. This strategy aligns our research and innovation activities with our new mission, vision and values, which have been defined through an extensive consultation process, Shaping our Future. It takes inspiration from these commitments, placing research and innovation at the core of the University s future ambitions: We will engage in creating, sharing and applying globally significant research and innovation that delivers impact and makes a difference to individuals and society. We will be a key driver for economic growth and prosperity in our region, as well as establishing strategic international partnerships that will make our research and innovation truly global. Our research and innovation excellence will improve our national and international profile and ranking. We will seek to elevate our position amongst the world s top 500 universities (Times Higher Education World Rankings) and top 150 under 50 years of age (Times Higher Education Rankings). We will deliver excellence in research and innovation, as set out in the University of Portsmouth Strategy, , by: building on our financial strength and increasing the contribution to income that comes from research and commercial activities establishing nationally and internationally recognised cross-disclipinary thematic areas that address key issues facing society creating a network of strategic global partnerships to support internationalisation recognising and sustaining our strengths in undergraduate education and growing our provision in the areas of postgraduate, part-time, continuing professional development (CPD) and flexible modes of study To do this requires continued enhancement of the capacity, quality and contribution of research and innovation activities to the University s portfolio, and a sustained effort to ensure accountability through a high return on investment. We are committed to identifying and solving real-world problems as well as working intensively with our key stakeholders to enrich society and shape a better future. We will respond to key societal demands that expect not only exceptional performance, but also high impact. UNIVERSITY OF PORTSMOUTH RESEARCH AND INNOVATION STRATEGY

14 CROSS-DISCIPLINARY THEMES CENTRE FOR SIMULATION IN HEALTHCARE

15 OVERVIEW The University of Portsmouth has research and innovation excellence in a rich variety of areas. We will broaden our areas of excellence by being bold, agile, flexible and responsive to external needs, while remaining ethical, professional and socially responsible. To raise our profile internationally we will give a clear message to potential collaborators that we are committed to addressing major issues in a coordinated fashion. By doing so, we open up opportunities ranging from the local to the global level. These themes represent our commitment as an institution to act as a global citizen, to identify and solve key problems afflicting the world and to enrich the lives of its people. They embrace and expound the importance of working together across all disciplines to provide innovative approaches to global issues, meeting current and future needs of the planet, society and economy. The themes set out here do not displace any of our disciplinary strengths, nor do they stand alone, or function in a vacuum. They will be reviewed to ensure that they meet our strategic ambitions, our evolving capabilities and the changing nature of the world. DEMOCRATIC CITIZENSHIP Only active, informed and engaged citizens can fully safeguard democratic and sustainable societies against their many challenges. We will develop critical, multidisciplinary insights on past, present and potential future conditions, generating richer and more robust understandings of contemporary global societies and their cultural heritage. In communicating these to a variety of audiences, we will build greater awareness of the impact of change and the consequences of conflict over identities and resources. Exploring the development and potential futures of social and institutional structures as well as their implications for human wellbeing and justice, we will work to foster positive cultural and social exchange and engagement. UNIVERSITY OF PORTSMOUTH RESEARCH AND INNOVATION STRATEGY

16 CROSS-DISCIPLINARY THEMES FUTURE TECHNOLOGY CENTRE

17 FUTURE AND EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES Working to enhance growth and competitiveness across economic sectors, we will explore and develop multidisciplinary collaborations, inspired by emerging technologies to foster new ways of thinking, designing, evaluating and creating products and services for a sustainable future. We will harness advances in scientific and technology trends to enhance the quality of our lives and transform future industries. Technologies and systems that make more efficient and effective use of resources and materials are a key factor in continued and sustainable economic development. We will develop and create new products, services and processes that address and create solution pathways to global societal challenges with minimal cost and environmental damage. HEALTH AND WELLBEING Managing and maintaining health and meeting the challenges of disease and disability require innovative and cost-effective solutions that draw on technological, creative and scientific developments. We will focus our contribution on the whole life experience of individuals, and on people s potential for active contribution to their own wellbeing. We will endeavour to develop and test new models and tools for health and social care delivery, disease prevention, treatment and management. We will create more effective interventions and engagements for improved individual and collective wellbeing, working at levels from an understanding of the fundamental mechanisms underlying health and disease, to the multiple impacts of social and physical environmental damage. UNIVERSITY OF PORTSMOUTH RESEARCH AND INNOVATION STRATEGY

18 CROSS-DISCIPLINARY THEMES INSTITUTE OF MARINE SCIENCES

19 SECURITY AND RISK Security is an inescapable issue facing society. The security of individuals and societies worldwide is threatened by natural disasters and climate change, by political and criminal violence, conflict, fraud and other issues, all requiring analysis and interventions to secure peace, prosperity and justice. Our activities will address the challenges of achieving and safeguarding the physical and electronic security of individuals, organisations and societies, and exploring and understanding the tensions and conflicts arising in an interconnected world. We will work to chart responses to unpredictable change, develop strategic decision-making and leadership capabilities, and build understanding of the mechanisms and approaches required for effective, efficient and equitable collective security. SUSTAINABILITY AND THE ENVIRONMENT Understanding environmental change demands a historical perspective, including the more recent impact of human activity. Grasp of the interactions between the environment (natural, managed and built) and human populations is a global priority. We are faced with a growing set of challenges relating to sustainable use and habitation. We will take a significant role in promoting environmental awareness, and in developing techniques for evaluating and improving existing and potential damage to land and marine ecosystems. We will deploy a range of approaches to developing innovative solutions to protect resources and overcome the challenges of sustainability for landscapes, buildings and communities.
